U.S. Supreme Court Hears Arguments in Christian Legal Society Case

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, a case that will have a lasting impact on how religious student groups are treated by public universities.

Martinez is the dean and acting chancellor of the Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco and the defendant in this case after his law school refused to give official recognition to the Christian Legal Society, thereby denying it funding and any right of access to school facilities.

Regent University filed an amicus brief in support of the petitioner.
